The one line summary is that now we have unified the
authentication mechanisms used by the session setup code
and the rpc bin code so that you should no longer see
"unknown auth type 0x9" when dealing with SPNEGO in
rpc bind requests. And we have complete NTLMv2 support
through the CIFS and RPC layers in Samba now.
What we are still dealing with is the schannel changes in
Windows 2003 sp1 and Windows 200 SP4 SR1. Those winbindd
issues will be fixed soon. But maybe not in time for 3.0.21.
WRT to the other features (service control and eventlogs),
we working on some HOWTOs.
I can summarize the ServiceControl stuff like this
$ net groupmap set sid=S-1-5-32-544 unixgroup=admingrp
add 'svcctl list = cups' to smb.conf
$ cd /usr/local/samba/lib (assuming default install)
$ mkdir svcctl
$ cd svcctl
$ ln -s /etc/init.d/cups
Now connect using the service control applet (or MMC
plugin to manage remote computers) using an account
that is a member of the admingrp Unix group. You
should see some internal services and the "CUPS"
service listed. You should be able to start and
stop the cups service using the Windows tools.
